In March 2011, the world of tennis in Colombia was shaken by the presence of two of the greatest players of the moment, who are still in force today. The Spaniard Rafael Nadal and the Serbian Novak Djokovic made an exhibition at the El Campín Coliseum in Bogotá.
Hours after meeting in the Indian Wells final, with victory for Djokovic, the two tennis players made an effort to put on a good show and it was Nadal who won the exhibition, 7-6, 6-3, in front of some 15,000 spectators.
